Step By Step to Immaculate Results:
Hanging wallpaper is not just about gluing it to the wall!
Unlike many wallpaper installers, at Shotcount we employ a highly structured wallpaper install process. We strictly adhere to our traditional method that has proven itself for decades and yields picture perfect results every time.
Often times wall prep takes longer than the hanging of wallpaper itself.
1- Most walls have small imperfections and are not perfectly flat. In fact, wallpaper magnifies flaws in the walls. Wall prep is is the most important step to achieve a picture perfect wall.
2- The goal of wall prepping is to achieve a smooth and perfectly flat surface. Which requires repairing/patching the drywall from any holes, dents and scratches with drywall compound. When compound is dry it is sanded smooth.
3- In case the wall has some texturing, it will cause the textures to show thru the wallpaper. To address this, we apply a new layer of plaster to cover the textured areas of the wall. That way the textures will not intrude on the wallpaper.
4- The last step in the prep of the wall is to clean the wall by wiping it down with a vinegar solution to remove any debris and dust.
5- Only after the guidelines mentioned above are completed that the wallpaper installation can begin.
6- Enjoy your picture perfect wall!
